Even though he was facing the No. 31 overall pass defense on Thursday night, Christian Ponder still managed to struggle against the Buccaneers at home. He rarely looked confident passing downfield, and was forced out of the pocket often throughout the night.
Ponder completed 19 of 35 passes for 251 yards, one touchdown and one late interception that didn't help his cause.
Fantasy Impact: Well, at least this was better than his 58-yard performance last week. Ponder just isn't ready to make a real impact for your fantasy team. A lot of his yardage came in garbage time against prevent defense, so the stat line suggests his outing was better than it seemed.
